more revelations from ex cia contractor edward snowden revealed the u.s. has been bugging and saw other monitoring institutions in brussels washington and new york. price range and egypt three people killed by supporters and opponents of president. to come. down protesting projects with u.s. policies towards the continent of. war. new reports of u.s. surveillance from a german publication courtesy of edward snowden this spiegel magazine reporters
claim they've seen a top secret u.s. documents outlining how the country's intelligence bugged you offices and spied on the internal computer networks. of a has more. what's the the the documents that says that they received through edward snowden were able to see part of says is that the national security agency were well spying on the e.u. just about everywhere they could that they were tapping phones they were hacking their computer networks at the un in washington d.c. also that they were booking premises in brussels and carrying out the same type of . phone tapping and computer hacking there as well germany came out as one of the countries that was most bite on as part of this prism operation by the n.s.a. something that raised a few eyebrows and certainly posed a few questions when chancellor angela merkel met with president barack obama
a little while ago now what we're also seeing is that it's the same type of thing as this came out regarding the booking of then president dmitri medvedev so it seems that no matter who you work wherever you were you were subject to wire taps and computer hacking and having your premises bugged by the n.s.a. and one interesting part of this article says that it quotes saying that you were a target a definite target for this type of surveillance and also says that five years ago the e.u. itself had looked into phone calls that had been made to them had traced phone calls apparently back to a n.s.a. office that was based inside the nato compound in brussels so they certainly had suspected that they were under surveillance but it's a very different thing suspecting that somebody is watching you to then finding out through these type of leaked documents that they certainly were watching you and
just how closely they were watching you indeed. when r.t.r. deva new former deputy speaker of the belgian parliament why the u.s. selected the e.u. its close ally as a target. my educated guess is that this has having to do with economic spying on the e.u. you know that the e.u. is for the moment negotiating a new free trade agreement the us well you have all the interest to know what you know potent issue already discussing internally off strategy that is one of the possibilities but this is willing going on apparently for more than five years it traces back to dinah from nato headquarters well this. year decade into the show called echelon program from the seventy's the e.u.'s for example is stronger than ever militarily even technologically i mean the internet is an american invention but on the economic level it is losing ground everywhere here
and you can see what the brics countries are doing there the e.u. is adding strong which i would rush to after come in latin america and the u.s. doesn't seem to get its economic. priorities imposed as it used to so what i see here and here is is a big risk for economic spineless when leaks diplomatic correspondence from the ecuadorian government suggest that joining the sans map and pulling strings at the country's london embassy to help edward snowden they claim that they will expound harass the consul there to miss us safe travel pass documents for snowden which is not authorized by the country's government parties within a cotton evers of following the story. the wall street journal has recently published information containing diplomatic correspondence with the door and government and particularly there was information concerning one ecuadorian diplomat who works at the country's embassy in london it was the diplomat who
issued the controversial travel document for mr snowden and that's a later sparked a lot of debate now according to the car despondence the diplomat who works closely with the wiki leaks julian assange lynch and that information really provoked a lot of thoughts that mr asuncion could be perceived as running the show in akwa door and he could actually be in the middle of handling the situation mr assange said that all that are just another terms to really take away the turn showing from the c. rist exposures there were made to boy mr snowden and really the same commons came from aqua door in a president or afraid of carreras sad mr snowden's to exposures are serious and very important and that they once again shed some light on the massive u.s. spying out for its order from him and now we're going to have to explain our actions because we're not the one spying on people and they said we have provided
snowden with a document for travel now it is a problem for them and not what snowden actually revealed about cyber spying cases do you realize the trav they want to fall into what is really serious is snowden's whistle blowing it out there were also reports that door and president carter a out has held talks with the u.s. vice president joe biden however it was revealed that rare has not say yet made up his mind on snowden's asylum application it is impossible for mr edward snowden to actually leave the share much of our international airport. and the u.s. government has revoked his passport which means that he can get a russian visa to actually leave the airport nor can he if the are radically bly any tickets to have vanno or appledore so however as the story develops
now venice well you and president nicolas maduro will arrive in moscow on monday and that there are some speculations that his upcoming visit may actually resolve the situation in a way but meanwhile the whistleblower's father believes that snowden would return to america under certain conditions he outlined those terms in a letter to the u.s. attorney general when he snowden says his son should not be detained before trial or subjected to a gagging order he also declared that his son should be allowed to choose where the court proceedings will take place the older snowden admits that he hasn't spoken to edward since april and insists that while the ex cia contractor committed the crime he's not a traitor the thirty year old whistleblower hasn't been seen since he touched down in russia earlier this week and will be closely watching his future in or out of russia when you all the latest updates on there are on our website r.t.
dot com. thirdly riots between supporters and opponents of president mercy are escalating in egypt clashes have already killed several egyptians on an american national and xandra thousands are now rallying it's time for square in tahrir to modern it is the misleader steps down what is both true of course. the worst clashes were in egypt's coastal city of alexandria where we saw two people dead including one u.s. citizen the u.s. embassy for their part have removed all non-essential staff in fee that this could be a targeted attack in addition president of bomber came out calling for dialogue between
opposition forces and the president saying we must have a united stand the marines the u.s. marines are supposedly have come up with a contingency plan should the violence continue against u.s. citizens so to me i saw in protests people ripping posters of us to get the kind of around five percent saying the mission brotherhood the president tales from is definitely following a u.s. agenda civilian grassroots campaign called commodity which means rebel who collected at least eighteen million signatures calling for the president to step down saying saying that he's incapable of running the country we've seen no change in the last year the islamists for their part those who support the president say that all these opposition protests are in a just a mess as the president was democratically elected as egypt when this is a why something security crisis many citizens are reaching out to private security
firms to secure their homes and businesses i spoke to who are gearing up to protest who say they expect violence and this is something that they really fear in the shadow of the brick. building. is preparing for the expected violence between supporters and opponents of the gypsum president on sunday somebody says he has already failed to fight his small shop just of cairo's tahrir square with sheets of i wish he would get them and my kiosk has been robbed and destroyed a few times in previous clown shoes i'm going to vacate my shop as i'm afraid of what is going to happen in the bonds i don't want to lose everything. with the police taking a back seat those who can afford it reached. out to private security firms like this one general manager a former high ranking police officer but that we add to what hayden says his company is preparing for the west as protesters demand the resignation of missing brother had president mohamed morsi recommend a on june thirtieth there may be violence between the opposition forces and the
islamists so we're sending more people to the places were guarding them we're giving our staff and clients special training and information how they can secure their premises and how they deal with clashes. companies like these are plugging the gaps amid a deepening security crisis across the country lynchings are on the rice the latest brutal mob killing happened just a few days ago near the capital civilians are increasingly armed and protests are becoming more violent as citizens bring guns to clashes leaving many to fear for their deaths analysts say the breakdown of security is because citizens no longer feel that police who have been accused of being reluctant to provide security they also blame the government which has failed to confront the interior ministry they are responsible for the bigger they're from of law and order if they don't take the necessary steps to fix it they may want to they may wish to but if they're not actually solving it the buck stops at their door it will form
a very difficult to get the ministry of interior to reform for the police services to reform. precisely because inside the police force inside the ministry of interior there are so many people that are really quite opposed to the muslim brotherhood instead of promising change president morsi played with fire in his wednesday speech to the nation praising the police and thanking them for their work with violence on the horizon many will be forced to attend egypt's really thriving private security industry to protect their own homes and businesses true to our kind of. a group of secular leaning deputies have resigned from egypt's acting parliament in support of the opposition rallies so i think on the american university in cairo believes another uprising could be imminent as is in this president hasn't delivered on his promises. the president one is it is not the all knowing the objectives of the evolution two he was to salute the thing his own good
at the expense of the national interests of the country and also defend that. if the if he remained silent until it is still in school years egypt would become like somalia sudan there are looking for years that egypt would be there is absolutely sure that this is going to be hijacked like what happened to doing good with the mission by those islamists who wanted the society to sleep and stay put and to look into the dreams and lives and what do you want the who on the upswing is about putting into account the government and nobody feels you have to pull back on the president because of the one you feel to deliver what people expect. coming up in a program leaving the battlefield and may not be that easy for you face withdraw its troops from afghanistan without the taliban's permission now the details on the british prime minister's unexpected visit to the country later plus. the

that is but hundreds joined demonstrations and protests or and take time as well american aid to africa has been severely cut washington a step toward military operations on the continent u.s. officials say the presence tours supposed to prevent u.s. investment and strengthen africa's democratic institutions. and the. party takes a different view. we feel that the expression of our programs on the african continent for instance this published middle of the africa command. it's an indication of where u.s. interest on that front of clinton and we were and that. military bases are all over the way that the u.s. has court in order that you can have. all its current diplomatic relations as well as cradle ations why not start a little pulls through a system where the government through the u.s. trade relations what it will say. about this because this is
a huge imbalance between the u.s. and particularly noting that the u.s. has more than ten times the g.d.p. of the african continent. rights to a democratic dispensation on the continent and development that many african governments may seek to choose for themselves. british prime minister david cameron has made a surprise trip to visit u.k. troops in afghanistan and travel to the case largest military base in the country he pledged a permanent memorial to the hundreds of british service personnel lost their lives in the conflict. and last june was recently revealed to be holding almost one hundred afghan soldiers often without charge just in blogger bike i think it's a kind of saving face for the west now they've clearly lost understand they can't
leave they cannot withdraw the equipment they cannot withdraw the troops without the taliban. even agree that they can leave without being fired upon right now the west is trying to save face they're leaving with their tail tucked between their legs and you know they could have negotiated from the very start but i think the u.k. wants to follow america's disastrous policy disastrous war in afghanistan it's been over ten years and we're all we rid the same place the taliban are still strong. still operating in the region and the only thing the west has money should do is lose thousands of lives and spend billions of dollars and we have plenty more stories for you on our website including what's the connection between cockroaches and rescue operations that's what a dot com to read morning. critters that helps locate survivors at disaster sites.
crime and punishment a man who scribbled empty banking slogans in chalk on some american streets now faces a decade in jail that's why did not come for the full story. an act of brutal violence and legend carried out by a group of syrian rebel fighters and rage on verified video posted on the internet as the beheading of three men they find the following images disturbing. footage before its to show supporters of president assad been decapitated. women and children were among the crowd of onlookers comes just days after american media center shows. a long assuming. the patience. a bloody conflict raging on for over two
years violence to get the syrian president to step down versus more violence from a leader refusing to do so at least ninety thousand lives taken and counting from the get go washington supported the opposition the u.s. is making a terrible mistake in giving this undifferentiated very oversimplified black and white picture that the rebel opposition really good guys and assad is the bad guy it's a very very dangerous state. dangerous because the opposition is not even close to being a unified political force in reality made up of an array of groups. the free syrian army is a network of thousands of militias and maybe they come up to about eighty thousand people what's scary is how many of these people want you know an extremist government and i think it's more you know it's at least half horrific videos such as this one have shown that in the uprising the enemy can not only be killed but
eaten too there's ten thousand fighters with al nusra front which is al qaeda in iraq reconstituted in syria they might as well call themselves you know al qaeda in syria but you know they want to rebrand while the west and russia remain at odds on where u.s. support of the opposition could lead. washington has its mind set on providing vetted routes of rebels with small arms and ammunition they're deluding themselves they think that they can cherry pick which factions of the opposition to support but somehow or other we can control the flow of weapons because we give them only to select people. many experts indicate that american politicians are kidding themselves if they think the arms flow can ever be managed and this question of how to give arms to one group but keep them out of the hands of another can likely never be answered i don't know if i've even heard a clear and unambiguous answer. the obama administration or any
foreign policy on about where those weapons are going and how we can actually secure in the fact that they're going into the right hands but you know who are the right hand we that russia which has been sending arms to the assad government under a contract that began before the violence says that the united states arming the diversified opposition would kill not only more people but any hope for a peace settlement potentially turning the syrian crisis into never ending chaos like of again a step even if assad is pushed out after years of bloodshed there are no assurances that his departure will bring peace moreover of the us goes ahead with any shape or form of involvement in syria which the opposition would embrace the tide could turn much quicker than american officials may desire loyalties are temporary and guns and weapons like diamonds are forever so today they may be your friend and tomorrow they're pointing to the stinger at you receive the sun that as many as seventy
percent of americans like us to stay away from syria let. them out after a decade of warfare in the middle east some while all summer rain pouring oil into the fire from left to right it might be high time you want to rethink it. that's a trick and artsy. or world news in brief for you now thousands of gathered in toxins squarely stumbled in modern justice for a protest shot by police during rallies that swept turkey also bred to their anger with the release of a police officer from custody pending trial for the killing of an activist in the top of the language and he adopted the second standing man protest from defiance came popular after police crackdown with turkey has witnessed almost a month of on rest after city and against a government redevelopment plan of yours the park in istanbul has broken out. at least eleven people have died in

coming up technology update discovers the latest innovation in russian medical science itself the breakout. if you lived in the us knows that the i.r.s. does not play around one honest or dishonest mistake could get you in a lot of trouble even a longtime friend of mine got his entire life savings destroyed due to some simple honest error you think that workers in an organization that could punish you for your financial failings would be very sharp with their own money but that's sadly not the case according to an audit report from the treasury inspector general for tax administration at the very least one thousand iris employees have abused the charge cards they were issued to cover their official travel expenses some of these
people are very high on the ladder including an executive level official a criminal investigator and multiple blois with security clearances much of the abuses related to employees writing checks for big purchases which later bounced due to accounts being empty yeah the people who could ruin your life for one little financial folly seem to have no problem over drawing while they are living it up on taxpayer funded travel to keep things in perspective the iris is a huge organization so one thousand abusers is a minority but in the spirit of fairness i think these card abusers should be punished just as harshly as normal people who run afoul of the i.r.s. fascist my opinion.
oh and welcome to technology regardless of who you are and whether you live in moscow or anywhere else in the world we all like the one holiday which we're all hoping for good health to give us a. truck out to find the latest improvements in russian medical science. health. good health. breakthrough. technology it's not surprising that they were.
